WINNER of the PULITZER PRIZE for NON-FICTION 2016. In a thrilling
dramatic narrative, Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Joby Warrick
traces how the strain of militant Islam behind ISIS first arose in
a remote Jordanian prison and spread to become the world's greatest
threat. When the government of Jordan granted amnesty to a group of
political prisoners in 1999, it little realized that among them was
Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, a terrorist mastermind and soon the architect
of an Islamist movement bent on dominating the Middle East.
